3'3-Diindolylmethane (DIM) has been proved to exhibit anticancer properties in many solid tumors. In our previous study, we demonstrated that DIM inhibited SGC7901 cell proliferation by inducing apoptosis and delaying cell cycle progression. Herein, we further explored the anti-tumor effect of DIM on SGC-7901 tumor bearing mice. Tumors were excised, weighed, and tested by western blot and TdT-UTP nick-end labeling (TUNEL) assay. Blood samples were collected for biochemical analysis. The expression levels of AhR and cytochrome P450, family 1, subfamily A, polypeptide 1 (CYP1A1) protein were evaluated by western-blot assay...

Cyprodinil (CYP) is a pyrimidine amine fungicide that has been extensively used in agricultural areas. 3,3'-Diindolylmethane (DIM) is a derivative of the dietary phytoestrogen, indole-3-carbinol (I3C), which is derived from cruciferous vegetables and considered to be a cancer-preventive phytonutrient agent. In this study, the effects of CYP and DIM were examined on the cell viability, invasion, and metastasis of human endometrial cancer cells, Ishikawa, via epithelial mesenchymal transition (EMT). CYP increased the level of cell viability of Ishikawa cells compared to DMSO as a control, as did E2...

Triclosan (TCS) and bisphenol A (BPA) are endocrine-disrupting chemicals that interfere with the hormone or endocrine system and may cause cancer. Kaempferol (Kaem) and 3,3'-diindolylmethane (DIM) are phytoestrogens that play chemopreventive roles in the inhibition of carcinogenesis and cancer progression. In this study, the influence of TCS, BPA, Kaem, and DIM on proliferation and apoptotic abilities of VM7Luc4E2 breast cancer cells were examined. MTT assay revealed that TCS (0.1-10 μM), BPA (0.1-10 μM) and E2 (0...

Using real-time RT-PCR in combination with bioinformatics, we have shown for the first time that the treatment of HCT-116 and HT-29 colon cancer cells with two anti-cancer agents (doxycycline or 3,3'-diindolylmethane) results in profound changes in the intracellular content of several lncRNAs (by up to 100 times). Since many of these RNAs are secreted by tumors into the bloodstream, the obtained results provide a basis for developing more sensitive protocols for serological monitoring of tumor relapse and metastasis, as well as for search of new anti-cancer drugs...

The structure of the ortho-, meta- and para- hybrid diindolylmethane-phenylboronic acids and their interactions were optimized with by a quantum chemical method, using density functional theory at the (DFT) level. Thus, infrared bands were assigned based on the scaled theoretical wavenumbers by correlating the respective experimental data of the molecules. In addition, the corresponding ¹H-/(13)C-/(11)B-NMR experimental and theoretical chemical shifts were correlated. The target molecules showed a poor treatment of the OH shifts in the GIAO method due to the absence of explicit solvent effects in these calculations; therefore, they were explicitly considered with acetone molecules...

Autophagy is activated in the ischemic heart and is a process that is essential for survival, differentiation, development and homeostasis. 3,3'‑Diindolylmethane (DIM) is a natural product of the acid‑catalyzed condensation of indole‑3‑carbinol in cruciferous vegetables. Numerous studies have suggested that DIM has various pharmacological effects, including antioxidant, antitumor, anti‑angiogenic and anti‑apoptotic properties. However, the function of DIM on hypoxia‑induced cardiac injury remains to be elucidated...

Current therapy for Glioblastoma is insufficient because of the presence of blood brain barrier. It limits the transport of essential drugs to the tumor sites. To overcome this limitation we strategized the delivery of an anticancer compound 3,3'-diindolylmethane by encapsulation in poly (lactic-co-glycolic acid) nanoparticles. These nanoparticles were tagged with a novel peptide against somatostatin receptor 2 (SSTR2), a potential target in glioma. The nanoformulation (27-87nm) had loading and encapsulation efficiency of 7...

BACKGROUND: Chronic inflammation in ulcerative colitis (UC) patients is the major risk factor for colitis-associated colon cancer (CAC). Recent evidences have shown that microRNAs (miRNAs) are implicated in CAC pathogenesis. However, the interaction of miRNAs with the transcription factors that alleviate CAC has not been reported. METHODS: 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) or 3,3'-diindolylmethane (DIM) were used to activate aryl hydrocarbon receptor (Ahr) in azoxymethane (AOM)/dextran sodium sulfate (DSS)-induced CAC in mice...

BACKGROUND: 3,3'-Diindolylmethane (DIM) is a condensation product of indole-3-carbinol, a glucosinolate naturally occurring in Brassica genus vegetables. The antiinflammatory properties of DIM through the inhibition of NF-κB, as well as its ameliorating effects on glucose tolerance and hyperglicemic states, have been described. A subclinical proinflammatory profile resultant from the interaction of adipocytes and macrophages have been reported in obesity, affecting the insulin signaling pathway, contributing to insulin resistance...

3,3'-Diindolylmethane (DIM) and its synthetic halogenated derivatives 4,4'-Br2- and 7,7'-Cl2DIM (ring-DIMs) have recently been shown to induce protective autophagy in human prostate cancer cells. The mechanisms by which DIM and ring-DIMs induce autophagy have not been elucidated. As DIM is a mitochondrial ATP-synthase inhibitor, we hypothesized that DIM and ring-DIMs induce autophagy via alteration of intracellular AMP/ATP ratios and activation of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) signaling in prostate cancer cells...

The most crucial complication related to doxorubicin (DOX) therapy is nonspecific cytotoxic effect on healthy normal cells. The clinical use of this broad-spectrum chemotherapeutic agent is restricted due to development of severe form of cardiotoxicity, myelosuppression, and genotoxicity which interfere with therapeutic schedule, compromise treatment outcome and may lead to secondary malignancy. 3,3'-diindolylmethane (DIM) is a naturally occurring plant alkaloid formed by the hydrolysis of indolylmethyl glucosinolate (glucobrassicin)...

The evaluation of the bioavailability of bioactive compounds from cruciferous foods is one challenge in the design of clinical trials for studying their functionality. Currently, studies of bioavailability are mainly based of the analysis of total isothiocyanates and indoles, and sulforaphane metabolites after broccoli consumption. However, as far as we are aware, there are not any biomarkers studied or established for the intake of radish sprouts. In this work, a 7-days-cross-over study with fourteen women was undertaken to compare the bioavailability of glucosinolates from broccoli and radish sprouts...

As a phytoestrogen, 3,3'-diindolylmethane (DIM) plays a chemopreventive role by inhibiting cancer progression. In this study, we examined the effects of 17β-estradiol (E2), two endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs), triclosan (TCS) and bisphenol A (BPA), and DIM on epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and metastatic behaviors of estrogen receptor (ER)-positive MCF-7 breast cancer cells. An in vitro assay revealed that E2 (10(-9) M), TCS (10(-5)-10(-7) M), and BPA (10(-5)-10(-7) M) induced MCF-7 cell proliferation compared to a control through the ER pathway...

Malignant mesothelioma (MM) is a very aggressive, lethal cancer, and its incidence is increasing worldwide. Development of multi-drug resistance, therapy related side-effects, and disease recurrence after therapy are the major problems for the successful treatment of MM. Emerging evidence indicates that dietary phytochemicals can exert anti-cancer activities by regulating microRNA expression. Until now, only one dietary phytochemical (ursolic acid) has been reported to have MM microRNA regulatory ability. A large number of dietary phytochemicals still remain to be tested...

A Pd(ii)-Ag(i) catalyzed highly efficient synthesis of diindolylmethane has been developed. This transformation consists of a one-pot sequential Sonogashira coupling (and desilylation) followed by cycloisomerization/C3-functionalization of 2-iodoanilines. Six new bonds (four C-C and two C-N) are formed in a one-pot fashion. A variety of diindolylmethanes were obtained in excellent yields (up to 94%) under mild reaction conditions and this strategy is amenable to gram scale synthesis also. The products were transformed into various synthetically useful compounds...

A transformation of the unstrained phenol substituted 3,3'-diindolylmethanes (DIPMs) to 2,3'-diindolylketones (DIKs) by double C-C single bond cleavage with associated rearrangements, triggered by phenyliodine(III) diacetate (PIDA), is reported. Density functional theory studies reveal a mechanism involving multiple "charge-switching" steps by synergistic involvement of the two indole units with overall low activation energy. The indole 'charge-switching' mechanism in DIPMs was further extended toward synthesis of a natural product motif cyclohepta[b]indole from biaryl appended DIBM...

GTSE1 over-expression has been reported as a potential marker for metastasis in various types of malignancies, including breast cancer. Despite this, the transcriptional regulation of this protein and the causes of its misregulation in tumors remain largely unknown. The aims of this work were to elucidate how GTSE1 is regulated at the transcriptional level and to clarify the mechanism underlying GTSE1-dependent cell functions in triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC).Here, we identified GTSE1 as a novel target gene of the TEAD4 transcription factor, highlighting a role for the YAP and TAZ coactivators in the transcriptional regulation of GTSE1...

Indole-3-carbinol (I3C) and its dimer diindolylmethane (DIM) are bioactive metabolites of a glucosinolate, glucobrassicin, found in cruciferous vegetables. Both I3C and DIM have been reported to possess pro-apoptotic, anti-proliferative and anti-carcinogenic properties via modulation of immune pathways. However, results from these studies remain inconclusive since they lack thorough evaluation of these bioactives' physiological versus pharmacological effects. In the present study, we investigated I3C and DIM's dose-dependent effects on cytokines production in human T lymphocytes Jurkat cell line (Clone E6-1)...
